"Onchi is pronounced with a long "O". like "own chee"... but whatevas -say it how u like. Onchi is a punk rock band in Atlanta ,Georgia.They first appeared on the Atlanta scene in 2013,from seemingly out of nowhere. And have been steadily killing it at all their live shows and winning over audiences ever since. The sound of their music comes from 1 guitar(rhythm),2keyboards(bass and lead),and a cacophony of drums and cymbals being pulverized,as well as vocoder infused vocals. Kristian sings leads ,Cesar sings back-up,and Alain sings on special occasions. Onchi is heavily influenced by first wave punk,as well as some 80's hardcore,new wave ,post punk,60's garage,kraut rock,electronica,and no wave . Onchi concocts music that is new and interesting, creative and captivating ,weird and fantastic..Their music is fun ,exciting, rebellious, and hypnotic. Onchi plays by it's own rules and encourages everyone to do the same."
